The author of Adrian Mole’s diaries launches a full frontal attack on our funny bones again. This time she goes after the current occupant of 10 Downing Street in a fantastical, biting send-up. Things are starting to go wrong in Britain, the Prime Minister is having an identity crisis and we go along for the ride, accompanied by the salt of the earth policeman who stands guard outside the door at Number 10. Read this one as soon as you can - it is so topical it feels like it was written yesterday.

I was expecting comedy, or at least humour. This stayed in the arena of dismal farce all the way through.
